Public preview: AKS node pool user start/stop feature

Published date: November 02, 2021

The Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) node pool start/stopfeature for user node pools is now in public preview. It allows AKS customers to completely stop specific user node pools and pick up where they left off later with a single command, saving time and costs.

Previously, you had to scale down to 0 a user node pool and all its workloads in order to save costs or keep it running with a low footprint to avoid re-deployment, adding to operations time or wasting compute resources. The start/stop feature keeps user node pool configurations in place, like the previous node count, thereby allowing you to pick up where you left off without reconfiguring the node pools.
